This was a fun movie about Jean Lafitte, the privateer, who helped the Americans beat the British during the War of 1812. Sadly, it is a bit forgettable, but the great actors in this movie saved it from being a total bust!
This is a sweet romance film but ultimately forgettable. I would recommend watching it once...but probably not again. Please leave a comment or a like! I love hearing from you all.
This movie had all the right ingredients for a great romance movie! Please watch the movie if you have not because I couldn't find a single flaw in it! This is one to remember (especially the crazy iceberg scene towards the end of the movie). It has everything we all love about the classics! If you like Charles Boyer as much as I do, then this is a must see. My review: Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you're enjoying my reviews so far! Also, feel free to comment here or on YouTube. Let me know your opinions or if you know any interesting facts about the movie! ~ Ian Patrick ~
Hello All TCMers, Kudos to TCM for their upcoming June/July "Summer Of Darkness" film noir festival, starting in June on Friday nights, with a free online course concerning the noir era available as well!! Excellent idea, especially for those of us who would love to buy every film from that era, but can't afford to do so. Onto "Confidential Agent": Perhaps it does not fit entirely into the noir definition, as there are no evil masterminds, no double crossing lovers, no gangsters per se, but still I think it fits the bill pretty well. My interest in the film arose from my love of Lauren's early work, and there is such precious little of it, this was her last film on my list to purchase. As far as audio and video quality, it surpasses "The Big Sleep" disc in the 4 film "Bogart/Bacall Collection" Box Set. That was such a disappointment video wise, the film's quality is annoyingly uneven, some scenes like Bogie playing surgeon in the basement are B&W at its best, while other parts are grainy and lacking definition, with soft blacks. What "C.A." lacks in substance, it makes up for in quality of presentation and of course, Lauren at her sassy, spoiled rich girl, visually arresting best. The shots of her, some full length showing her at her statuesque prime, I suspect had Boyer wearing booster shoes, as did Bogie. The film's plot has the trappings of the one thing Lauren's character professes to hate, perhaps a bit of melodrama. I then remind myself of what was still happening in the world at the time of its filming,(1944 for a 1945 release?) and all is forgiven. I won't spoil the ending for any who might not have seen it, but I suspect all of those that had envisioned the final outcome, only left wondering what the circumstances around it would be. Peter Lorre is his usual personification of a weasel, the only character that stretches credulity a bit is "the human observer", as played by Dan Seymour. Mr. Seymour was blessed with a much more credible part to play in Bogie and Bacall's premier, "T.H.A.H.N." Overall, Lauren's youthful beauty and the way she carries herself render any meaningful criticism of little import. My biggest regret is the paucity of Lauren's appearances on film from this era. Thanks for listening, and thanks again to TCM for the upcoming noir festival and the online lecture course. Well Done TCM, Mac
